Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
A colossal glass-and-steel monument, Globe Roundabout looms over its surrounding traffic circle. Designed by Spanish architect Julio Lafente, the work makes up one of many monument squares and roundabouts scattered across the city, many of which feature work by the same artist. The giant globe lights up at night, glowing turquoise against the evening sky. Use our Jeddah trip planning website to add Globe Roundabout and other attractions to your Jeddah vacation plans.

  • Come to Jeddah and see a globe on a roundabout, woohoo rock n roll. You would get more excitement watching paint dry.  more »
  • Nothing particularly special to see here. I was driven past it at night in an Uber when I visited Jeddah in Nov 2019. There was a lot of traffic but not really much to see. Not worth a special trip...  more »
